4.0 out of 5 stars A quick reality check, 12 April 2013
With cyclings rise in popularity amongst the so called MAMIL's, riders are frequently look for the next big challenge. Having slipped back to the care free attitude of our youth many happily take the leap from sportive to LEJOG. There are many reasons it's called a challenge and they are all laid out in this book. Not for our intrepid travellers the luxury of a 2000+ fully supported luxury trip through the Isles. They completed their odyssey old school, took the knocks, battled with the logistics and a wandering (semi) support vehicle for just part of the journey. The reader is treated to an intimate journey with the two riders, including the build up to the event, the agreement to partake and a host of characters encountered on route. It will even provide fair warning of the post ride blues you are inevitably going to suffer.
If you are considering pushing yourself on LEJOG give the book a read, if you change your mind your money won't be wasted; it's an entertaining read for cyclists and you poor unfortunate other lot alike...

5.0 out of 5 stars Move over McKenna, 19 Jan 2010
Other confidence books I have read claim to make you the most confident person in the room. This book explains the reality of confidence and confident people. They get nervous too! They appear confident through a combination of knowledge, experience and the willingness to step outside of their comfort zone grab hold of life and give it a go. But, they still get nervous whilst appearing self confident.

Paul McGee has the ability to look at life in all its its strange reality and help people make sense of it. Self Confidence builds on Paul's Sumo principles taking the reader down a different route in life.

The book explains how a small difference in you can make a big difference in your life. It will help you beat your fears, control your nerves and achieve more with your life. I read it in 18 hour and already apply the principles personally and to help others in the midst of a crisis in confidence.

Give it a read

5.0 out of 5 stars Where would you be without customers?, 8 Oct 2008
Everyone knows that to build a successful business you need to RETAIN your customers once you have convinced them to join you in the first place. This book takes a common sense approach to achieving that goal. I have read all of the 'bare knuckle series' and found they take you on a business journey, from looking at yourself, obtaining what you need from a business transaction and now keeping your customers to build repeat income streams. Simple processes that keep you asking 'why haven't I done that already?' In todays economic climate lose your customers at your own peril!

4.0 out of 5 stars This is not a review of the Lyons tour, 1 Dec 2006
Anyone who has built a high performing team will know it does not happen overnight. This is an insight into the building of the winning team that led to a national celebration using skills that are transferable into the business world. If you want to know about the Lyons tour buy another book and learn what happens when you can't apply the right techniques to a team.

5.0 out of 5 stars The trouble with the Balkans, 15 Dec 2005
This review is from: Bridge Over The Drina (Paperback)
This literary masterpiece is mandatory reading in Bosnian schools. Readers who wish to enjoy the literary prose should feel free to take pleasure in the spectacular writing style without concerning themselves of the politics of the turbulent Balkans.
Those who wish to have a snap shot understanding of the history of the Balkans will find it in the small village near the river Drina.
The book has been criticised for its terminology especially the use of the word Turks. It should be remembered that this was perhaps reflective of the view of the Serb at the time. Without the venom the history and understanding will be lost. The book reflects the view of a population invaded and dominated by a foreign country. There is a message of hope in the book but, more importantly an understanding of how the ambitions of a few can affect the daily life of the many. On completing the book the reader will have an impressive understanding of how discrimination can lead to 700 years of hated whilst still feeling a member of this ancient village. The book is an enjoyable tale of when life was cruel, simple and unpredictable. Enjoy it or analyse it the choice is yours!
